For a neutral fan, yesterday’s clash between PSG and Troyes was a spectacle: 4-3. Goals, feelings and blows. For Christophe Galtier Not much. Although he remained tough, his team did not adjust tactically to what they had worked for and suffered badly at the back. Soft, but above all the placement on the pitch is not good: “We don’t have intensity. We have things to correct”, reflected the French coach in the press room.
Faced with doubts, Messi serves as an answer. All characters, he is again the total football player in other times: “We know a thousand versions of Leo, but when he plays in the upper level of the diamond in 4-4-2 he brings many solutions. Assuming that he will never be able to draw long diagonals again, this position puts him off from many races ”, underlined in the newspaper L’Équipe this morning, which was once cruel to the star of Argentina.
Today, however, everything is praise. He has twelve goals, seven of them in the league, four in the Champions League and another in the Summer Super Cup: “It’s not customary to see it Messi”, sums up RMC Sport. On the threshold of the World Cup, the man from Rosario arrived in Qatar full of energy, with the dream of taking his team to the top. It is a pending account, especially after losing the 2014 final in Brazil against the mighty Germany.
Cannot be rotated
Christophe Galtier wanted to make changes yesterday to give the trident some rest, having accumulated too many minutes on the legs. Especially Neymar, who will not play against Juve next Wednesday due to suspension: “The three of them had to stay until the end to get the comeback against Troyes. We need their goals”, he assured after a game that kept PSG at the top of Ligue 1.
However, the coach of the French champion accumulated problems with the management of the group. Ekitike, without a minute, was not happy: “You don’t have to stop trying. Then the decision is mine, but I am convinced that we will use him. He has to have minutes and he will surely be important for the team”, confessed a Christophe Galtier who knows that it is not easy to find the balance with the competition that the youngster has with Messi, Neymar and Mbappé.
